There are a few more photos of some of my rolling stock in the "scratch building and kit bashing" section of the forum.
You may have to scroll through the section for the ones I have posted. I will be adding the ore car photos there today.

Afternoon Ken, had a look in the scratch building tread, will have to check again later after you posted those pics.

Quite a few great ideas on that thread.

Dam hot here was going to do some work on the modules  soldering the brass strips and cutting the track on the module join, 33C degrees at 8 am in the morning in the sun humid as well.

Going to do some work on the ship, marking out and cutting the bow sections.
Haven't worked out what and where I will start a new thread on the model ship build, scratch building thread a good thread ?????

The scratch building section, would work out best place,as to were your ship building project would work. This would keep it from your layout build.

Early Morning Ken, thanks that what I will do put the ship build in Scratch building, what I am doing. Was hard at in in the drafting department redrawing the ship side plan, decided to built it to scale, did try to make the main deck higher, didn't work out too well sticking to the hull measurements.

Was to hot this morning to make a start on the  two modules cutting the sleeps on the module join and  soldering brass strips to the track and then cutting on the join, going to be a hot night. Will see what tomorrow is like, a few showers predicted , hopefully cooler, once I have cut the track will the modules apart and start unscrewing the the bus plug panel.

A friend gave me a great idea to hide the pergola post have a HWY over pass could have two, look into it once the module is in place, before that will have level the three station modules first.

I have drawn up the new track plan, new plan has no spirals till stage three  when I extend the layout on the Northern end to go beside the house, will have a single track concrete arch bridge modeled on the North Fork bridge Feather river California.
fingers crossed it is cool in the morning, if not will continue on the ships drawing so I can make a start on the cutting out the hull sections.

Morning Ken, thanks for the pics,nice ship be easy to module hull wise, single prop.

I wasn't well yesterday, didn't do anything, mainly watched the cricket, Australia won, not a white wash, so they should of being Australia day.

Out tomorrow, Monday back on the layout, rain coming in  be slightly cooler, no work on the ship drawing either.

Could you ask your friend if I am on track, I divided the length and height of the hull and beam by 87 scale is that right and let me know so as possible, many thanks.

If you divide the length and breath measurements in ft by 7.25 that would give you the HO measurements in inches. In my case I divide by 4 for O scale.

87 inchs / 12 inchs = 7.25 ft/inch in HO

Ex 500' / 7.25 = 69 inchs
500' / 87 = 5.75 x 12 = 69 inchs
500' / 4 = 125 inchs in O scale

Weather wise, the warmest it may get for the next 2 weeks is -12C, with a bit? of snow. Have a few videos to rewatch so that should keep me out of the cold!.

Hi Ken, thanks for the scale tool, I did that and came up with 25.7, wow that would be the length of the pergola, length of the ship is 187 meters and beam 26.5 meters.

I found a scale calculator, here it is, may be in Center Meters because I tried that in the calculator came up with the same, confused here.

We are having hot weather all week in the mid 30's, if we don't have rain soon will start losing plants and the grass is suffering as well, just a few showers predicted.
It is raining up north, Darwin, monsoons, they say we may get rain form that hope so.

No-thing happening today with the hobbies, Monday afternoon on the layout need to solder the track down with those brass strips so I can cut the track and move the modules apart and cut out the square hole for the steel pergola post . Before that have to unscrew the bus wire plug panel and move the panel over the the other module.

Convert the meter's to feet then divide by 7.25

187 x 3.28 / 7.25 = 84.6 inches in length
26.5 x 3.28 / 7.25 = 12 inches in breath

Easy way divide meter's by 2.2 equals inches
187 / 2.2 = 85 inches
26.5 / 2.2 = 12 inches

1 meter = 3.28ft x 12 = 39.36 inches
